Beach View's 'Peace of Mind' Pledge
Updated 4th January 2021
We reopened our hotel on 1st August 2020 & have been continuously welcoming guests into a safe & clean hotel environment. Beach View is approved as a designated holding hotel, where guests can safely quarantine in their rooms while awaiting test results. For more information on what this means, please click here. If you are planning to stay at Beach View exclusively for quarantine, you will be required to book for a minimum of 3 nights and you may need to book for 4 nights. Please contact us directly for more information.
Please also be guided by our government’s travel protocols for arriving passengers: www.barbadostravelprotocols.com. These are updated frequently & we recommend you double check these before your arrival.
With all of this in mind, we wanted to let you know what we are doing at Beach View to ensure your safety & that of our employees. Although we have always taken health & safety very seriously, we have started a more rigorous cleaning and disinfecting routine throughout the property. We have implemented several new protocols and before your arrival, we ask that you take the time to read the detailed information below this notice.
The Sugar Apple Cafe is also committed to maintaining a safe & clean environment for all, with new protocols & sanitising measures in place. Due to Covid-19 limitations, they will have to reduce some of their offering & please view their page for more information. In addition, The Hut will be closed when we reopen but this will remain under constant review & we will reopen The Hut as soon as we can.
Physical distancing practices will be in place throughout the property and we have taken the hugely difficult decision to suspend our Thursday evening cocktail party. The personal touch is the foundation on which we have grown our business & these measures are not intended to take away from this, but rather to keep yourselves & our staff safe.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
Robin & Carrie Walcott
